Amanda Youngblood has been an educator for over 16 years, but has been passionate about technology for much longer, starting from her formative education years learning coding a (now ancient) Apple computer. As a teacher, she has taught multiple subjects, at multiple grade levels, but throughout it all, she has woven her love of tech tools into her classes in order to enhance her students’ learning and broaden their view of the possibilities of learning and life. As a Google for Education Certified Trainer and Educator, she has the pleasure of sharing all the ways that Google’s apps can expand and enhance the classroom. She is also a lover of blended learning (especially Canvas’ LMS). While she loves presenting at conferences and professional development events, she also realizes that learning never ends. Her goal is to kindle minds everywhere, sparking students and educators to imagine the possibilities.
